THIRST

THIRST As *time flips a second step, a *tree dehydrated weeps for resuscitation sting tired but standing still Long ago its *branches dressed with **emerald feather tips ***swaying scattered **scarlet hearts invites hungry mouths but t'was a long time ago when earth was packed with angels Now, the whole ground where it stands A cracking sick land Its leafless ***bare branches bend Its trunk a ****weakening spine Its roots exposed to sun's glare tortured, waiting death NOTES: *personification = “time flips a second step”; “tree weeps”; “branches dressed” **synecdoche = “emerald feather tips”, scarlet hearts(referring to leaves and fruits) ***alliteration = “bare branches bend”, swaying scattered scarlet ****metaphor = the trunk linked to “a weakening spine" (c)Olive Eloisa 8:20 am October 02, 2014

    Despite the lack of water and approaching death by thirst, the tree still has a slight chance of survival....through the grace of blessed rain that could easily give fresh life; not all is lost! // paul
